What to Do In: Inwood

It was a gorgeous day yesterday and I took the A train to the start at 207th to check out the Inwood Greenmarket. (See a full listing of Greenmarkets in NYC) I am looking into getting more locally sourced produce, so I plan to join a CSA in my neighborhood. Until the program starts, I figured I’d venture to the closest market this weekend to find some tasty things. There were vendors selling bread, cheese, meats, produce, vegetables, plants, herbs and more. I bought apples, kale, and bread. Then I went right to Inwood Hill Park and sat by the water to eat the bread (sooo good!).

I walked back home and passed the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum which was built in 1784. Yesterday was their open house, and also a number of artists were painting on the grounds, which gave it a very surreal feeling. It was already pretty surreal to be in this historical house when from the porch you can see billboards and brick buildings. I was very pleased to have the opportunity to check out the farmhouse – it had been on my list since I moved but I never went up to 204th to check it out.

After checking out the house, I continued south and walked through a flea market on Broadway at the RING Garden.

Then I walked through Fort Tryon and got to see some of the beautiful flowers in bloom!

I keep finding such great things in my neighborhood – just have to keep adventuring!
